    www.go4expert.com has decided to support the open source projects mainly at sourceforge.net. What ever is the income of go4expert.com a part will be made towards funding the open source projects. I would like to keep the numbers only to us as that could lead to lots of unnecessary questions.

    Here are the requirements for your project to qualify for Go4Expert's support

    1. The project must have a website (Where we can contact you).
    2. You must place an acknowledgment / list of each donation on your site.
    3. Your project must be currently active and have produced a product.
    4. Your product must be released under a free open source software license and this must be stated somewhere on your site.
    5. You must have a PayPal address or PayPal service that donations can be sent to.

    We have started with supporting DOxygen and soon we will be moving towards other sites to make the donations.

    If you are involved by any means with any open source project and think that your site can qualify for donations do [thread=1212]nominate[/thread] your project for donation.

    If you are looking to support the open source community through Go4Expert PM Me

    Hi there. I'm tamlyn, lead developer of singapore. We too have received a donation from go4expert. Thanks!

    This initiative looks very similar to another from which we have recently received a donation. I can only hope that this is a sign of things to come where companies big and small recognise that it is in their interests to encourage open source software development. Thanks again :)

    I would like to add here that the process is started once again and we will soon be seeing some activity here. We have accumulated some money and the open source community can expect something more this time.

    ISC has just received a donation from Go4Expert. It is donors like you that allow ISC to continue to develop BIND, DHCP and other internet infrastructure products and services.
    Thanks!

    We were planning to go with CodeBlocks but they have not responded for sometime this month and so I would consider codelite. Check your PM.
